JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – The 27th Annual Concordia Lutheran Church Thanksgiving meal served the most in its history in 2017.
“We served 677 meals that day,” reports volunteer Amy Neustel. We had many volunteers and businesses help assist in this great opportunity to serve our community.”
The meal started in 1990 when the late pastor Fritz Buegel served roughly 20 meals at the Pantry Cafe. The meal was designed for single people, parents, families, college students, those who don’t want to cook, can’t travel or have no family.
The Daily Bread program received any leftover food from the day, which will then help provide food for those in need. Meals were delivered and served in house.
